Its like i thought setting off and driving would be really hard, and i was so chuffed when i could do it, i though "ooh this is easy", but now ive had about 13 hours the hard bit is really here, and i just cant visualise myself driving. manouvers arnt really the problem, i can drive on the main roads and stuff, and sometimes i do really well,but then i'll do something stupid, like stall when im slowing down, and i totally lose my head. i just cant imagine being at test standard, let alone driving by myself. is this normal, i just wanna drive now, and im so impaitient!
How many balloons does it take to float a car?
I hated driving when i first started, thinking about lane placements signals speed where im headed for watching everyone trying to overtake. etc.
But once youve been doing it a while and are confident in your ability you'll find you do all those things without any thought. I had problems stalling cars right up to my first test ( which i failed). I was so gutted I stopped driving for almost two years. When I went for it again, I was more confident and passed with no minor faults at all.
I now drive fleet vehicles as a mobile engineer, that means I drive a different car every week and do over 40k miles a year easy. I do that without a seconds thought, something id never think was possible when I first started, and since my test 5 years ago now, I think ive stalled a car possibly 3 times, and never had an accident ( a few close ones though)
I have no car of my own but can i rent one?
Just take your time ignore the impatient drivers around you hassling, and take in what your doing, everyone had to learn once.
Truck Driving for a Beginner?
Oh and on one of my first lessons i went straight over a roundabout, not one of those little mini white ones either, i'm talking about a huge one with grass, flower beds and decorations. The getting on it was a bit of an accident, but trying to get off it wasn't fun, no one wants to giveway to the learner trying to get off the grass.

Where Can I get Free Vin Searches?

Whats the difference between Front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and rear wheal drive cars?
Dont worry about it too much, I was in the same boat as you when i was learning to drive, I made loads of stupid mistakes even on the hour lesson before my test for example nearly getting hit by a lorry on a round about just before i turned into the test centre. You will get there it is a bit scary the first time you drive on your own but it does get better and then you will feel great that you have the freedom of driving. I have been driving for 11 years now and still i stall the car not very often but it still happens!
